Electronic waste, or e-waste, is a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non-working or obsolete, and have reached the end of their useful life. As the technology is upgrading at such a high rate, many electronic devices become “trash” after a few short years of use. In fact, whole categories of old electronic items contribute to e-waste such as Pagers being replaced by Keypad Phones, and Keypad Phones being replaced by Touchscreen phones. E-waste can be created from anything electronics like, Printers, Computers, TVs, Monitors, Cell phones, USB Pen-drives, Photocopy machines, etc.

In order to ensure effective implementation of E-Waste Rules and to clearly delineated the role of producers in EPR, MoEF & CC, Government of India in supersession of E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011 has notified the E-Waste (Management) Rules, 2016 vide G.S.R. 338(E) dated 23.03.2016 which will be effective from 01-10-2016. These rules are applicable to every producer, consumer or bulk consumer, collection centre, dismantler and recycler of e-waste involved in the manufacture, sale, purchase and processing of electrical and electronic equipment.
E-waste contains many valuable, recoverable materials such as aluminum, copper, gold, silver, plastics, and ferrous metals. In order to conserve natural resources and the energy needed to produce new electronic equipment from virgin resources, electronic equipment can be refurbished, reused, and recycled instead of being land filled.
E-waste also contains toxic and hazardous materials including mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium, chromium, and chemical flame retardants, which have the potential to leach into our soil and water.
Protects your surroundings - Safe recycling of outdated electronics promotes sound management of toxic chemicals such as lead and mercury.
Conserves natural resources - Recycling recovers valuable materials from old electronics that can be used to make new products. As a result, we save energy, reduce pollution, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and save resources by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth.
Helps others - Donating your used electronics benefits your community by passing on ready-to-use or refurbished equipment to those who need it.
Saves landfill space - E-waste is a growing waste stream. By recycling these items, landfill space is conserved.

Almost anything electronic in nature can be recycled properly with effort. Some municipalities have transfer stations that accept e-waste.

Some unscrupulous recyclers ship e-waste overseas where it is disposed of improperly, posing a threat to the environment and its' people.
